Looks good. But I’m not a fan of Save ‘Our’ Date. You dont own the date. I like Save the Date much better.

Also, will you be hand writing the address on the lines or using labels? If labels (or if you are cheating by lightly printing (by computer) and tracing with darker pen), then dont put lines.

@KoiKove:  +1, I prefer save the date as well. Also, I hate kissy face pictures. That would ensure I did not save that card or put it on my fridge.

The kissing is on the back though, where it wouldn’t show if you wanted to stick it to your fridge?

I agree on maybe finding a picture other than the kissing one, but I actually LIKE “Save our Date”. I think it sounds personal and inviting. I also don’t know that you need to repeat all the same information on the back of the card that you put on the front.

@jdhall89:  I’d be turned off by the whole thing and I wouldn’t want it at all. I promise I am as far from a prude as there is in my own life. I just don’t care to have photographs of other people sucking face. It adds no value to my life. I see them kissing in public? Meh, who cares. Memorialize in a picture if I am not one of the folks kissing? No, thank you. I don’t think it’s tasteful for a wedding especially.

@classical_wolf:  Glad I am not alone for once!

I like what you did with the back. I agree with changing the wording to save the date. I think the kissing picture is fine. It is small on the back and guess what there will be plenty of kissing at the wedding so people better get used to it. It’s purely sweet and innocent – keep it

@StL.Ashley:  I really like it, but I would do as other’s suggested at put Save the Date. Not because it isn’t your date, but just because it sounds better.

And the kissing picture is absolutely fine. I hope people are smart enough to hang the other side on the fridge and not the side with their address.

+1 to  Save THE Date.  Have you thought about using a brighter/ lighter color for the font?

Also, on our STD (I can’t help but giggle each time I type that), to avoid the “yuck” some people feel about a kissy face picture, we did an “looking deep into each other’s eyes” pic so you can see the love we feel for one another in profile.

@KoiKove:  Save THE date sounds better to me as well.
I really love the back.

I think the kissing picture is fine, especially since your ring is the focal point. If you are feeling iffy about it, a nice close up picture of your two would be nice as the front is a far away view. I agree with saying save THE date.

I also agree with Save THE Date. I don’t mind the kissing picture, but after reading so many Bees aversion to it before sending out my own Save the Dates, I made sure not to put any kissing pictures on mine! LOL.

I don’t mind the kissing pic, plus it will be against the fridge so people won’t see it.

and yes change it to Save the Date. otherwise it looks good.
